The sun is slowly becoming more prominent in our weather forecasts, so I feel comfortable in writing about more spring trends!

If your style is more laid back and casual but you occasionally want to spice it up a little every now and then, this accessory is right up your alley! Floral everything seems to popping up in all major fashion shows, designer lines and commercial campaigns.

What I love about any floral pattern piece is that it gives off a very natural and feminine vibe and can easily be manipulated into any style preference. Another great thing about this trend is that it is versatile and can make an impact on your outfit, whether it is an accessory to your outfit or main piece. Here are three outfits of varying styles that you can enjoy as we have more sunny days on campus:

1. Daily Casual: This outfit takes so little effort and is perfect for a girl’s day out or even for a first date. If casual is your daily style, reach into your closet for your personal staple items: jeans and a tee. The highlight for this outfit is floral patterned heels. To coordinate these pieces the best, you have to take in consideration of the color palette of the shoes. If they are a white, or light-colored background, opt for a lighter wash jeans and a white tee. If your shoes have a black background, venture towards black of dark-washed jeans and a white or black tee. The first look gives off a fresh spring look, while the latter option gives a chic vibe to it. If you don’t like heels or can’t walk in them, substitute them with flats and it will still have the same effect.

2. Feminine Rocker: With a combination of any floral pattern dress that you can find and a leather jacket, you are halfway to pulling off this look. What I love best about this combination is that it can lean towards either a complete rocker persona or give off a more interesting dual charm of both rock and feminine. To pull off the dual charm look, add some classic converse or just plain flats and some funky accessories like bangles and ear cuffs. If you are feeling adventurous, make your shoe choice some cute booties or pumps. Pull your hair into a side braid or a ponytail and finish with some red lips.

3. Boho Chic: Time to style some floral shorts! Choose any top to incorporate into this outfit between a regular tank or lace crop top. Add your favorite sandals or slippers, or Western-styled booties may work for this outfit as well. To complete this look add a fun kimono or knit cardigan and your biggest bug-eye shades. This look is very organic and if you have extreme interest in the boho chic lifestyle shoot to buy materials that are environmentally safe.
